The upcoming holidays in December and January will affect operating hours at Virginia ABC (Alcoholic Beverage Control) stores.
On Christmas Eve, Sunday, Dec. 24, all stores will close at 6 p.m. Some Virginia ABC stores will open an hour earlier that day to ensure customers have plenty of time to shop for distilled spirits, Virginia-made wines and mixers for holiday gatherings. Customers should contact their local store for specific hours. Contact information is available on the Virginia ABC website.
On Christmas Day, Monday, Dec. 25, all stores will be closed.
To accommodate shopping needs on New Year’s Eve, which falls on a Sunday this year, Virginia ABC will observe Saturday operating hours on the holiday; however, no store will be open beyond 9 p.m.
On New Year’s Day, Jan. 1, stores will open normally but all close at 6 p.m.
A searchable list of Virginia ABC’s 369 stores—including brands and quantities of spirits available at each location—can be found on the agency’s website at this link.
Virginia ABC encourages customers to celebrate all the year-end holidays responsibly and never drink and drive.
